Ink By Emily Enriquez


A raven flew in,
through an open door.

Black and blue wingspan
across my clean walls.
But my skin was a cage

the raven,

was never meant,

to see.

He splattered his ink,
in ugly patterns,
all over my white halls.

He plucked,

and peeled,

my flesh

from my bones.
And shattered

the only window

I left-
